Not even then, IIRC.  I believe it's spam if it's greater than *or equal* to
the threshold, so if the thresholds are equal, then it is a true binary
classification.

(Something like 'if score <= threshold: spam; elif score <= unsure_thres:
unsure', which has the two conditions identical in this case, so the second
is never hit).
